Hello,

Try this 1

Check if the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.

Here I assume your pendrive drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* --> Press Enter

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now check your pen drive for the files.

Hi Sreelekhalekhu,

Are you sure the data is in the drive? Please confirm that the space is occupied. Is the pendrive completely accessible and usable? If it is, try using the Computertech’s method. It usually works for hidden files and folders.
It the attrib command does not help you, confirm that the Hidden Folders option is not checked in the Windows Folder Options (Start-Control Panel- Appearance and Personalization-Folder Options- View Tab- Advanced Settings).
If all the settings seem fine, search for a data recovery tool and try to save the stored data. I leave you some suggestions below.

Once you have backed up the data, format the pendrive.

Hope this helps
